An FIR has been filed against actress Hema Malini, the BJP candidate from Mathura Lok Sabha seat, for allegedly violating the model code of conduct by addressing people at a temple in Bera village here.

"Not only flag and banner of the party was put on the building of Alkeswar Temple of Bera village falling under Mat Tahsil, but Hema Malini addressed a meeting on loudspeaker using temple premises as platform on April 7," ADM Dhirendra Sachan said.

Three FIRs have already been filed against the actress for alleged violation of the model code of conduct, he stated.

Meanwhile, notices have been issued against three other candidates from the constituency for alleged violation of model code of conduct.

"While AAP candidate Anuj Garg was found guilty of distributing party caps to people, BSP candidate Yogesh Dwivedi did not mention the number of pamphlets he distributed after getting them printed from a press.

Bahujan Mukti Party candidate Maharam Singh distributed pamphlets which does not carry the name of the press where it was printed.

He also did not furnish proof of the number of pamphlets he got printed," Sachan said.
